Biodiesel: The Fuel That Pays For School
All Minnesota high school seniors eligible for essay contest scholarship
Less than 1,000 words can earn $1,000 for college-bound students in Minnesota, thanks to a scholarship announced at the annual Education Minnesota Professional Conference in St. Paul. The Clean Air Choice™ Biodiesel Scholarship is open to any Minnesota high school senior and offers a $1,000 first-place and $500 second-place award to the winners of an essay contest about biodiesel, a cleaner-burning alternative fuel produced and used in Minnesota. Rules and an online entry form can be found at www.cleanairchoice.org. The scholarship is administered by the American Lung Association in Minnesota, which recognizes biodiesel as a “clean-air choice” fuel that reduces emissions. The scholarship is sponsored by the Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Council.
